A young girl, creative and idealistic, dreams of brighter days in a forgotten Eastern European city. Her fate is inextricably sealed when she crosses paths with a scheming, and enigmatic old woman, who harbours a dark secret.

What seems like a small act of cruelty between strangers, will fracture the very foundations of a city.
